Four Days In the Kitchen: Remembering Dr. Maya Angelou
Snowed By Snowden: NBC ‘Interview’ A Shameless PR Stunt
Dr. Maya Angelou died at her home in Winston-Salem, N.C., yesterday—a continuing chapter, one can’t help but believe, in an extraordinary life that packed centuries of experiences, wisdom, heartache and triumph into 86 years.
Utrice Leid recalls a one-on-one interview with Dr. Angelou that turned into a mind-boggling, four-day karmic experience for us both at the kitchen table.
NBC’s much-publicized “interview” of Ed Snowden by resident news “star” Brian Williams was, simply stated, an embarrassment to journalism. Leid Stories called it right when it predicted yesterday that the interview should be seen as “a study on the role of the media in aiding and abetting hidden agendas.”
